Forrest Woodbush (a.k.a. the Pet Collector) is a character in the 2015 Disney/Pixar film The Good Dinosaur. He is a Styracosaurus (a smaller relative of the iconic Triceratops) carrying numerous animals on his horns.
"Forrest Woodbush is a mysterious Styracosaurus who lives in the wilderness. Like Arlo, he harbors unreasonable fears. His ability to blend into his surroundings helps—along with an unusual (but not-exactly-fierce) collection of forest critters he’s recruited to protect him." He isn't seen again for the rest of the film.
The collection of pets Forrest Woodbush has gathered to protect him is highly eclectic and is composed of several reptiles, mammals, as well as a few birds and butterflies. The pets whose names are known are:
- Debbie: a bright red Avisaurus, who seems to be Forrest's favorite. Forrest interprets her singing as advice on what he should do.
- Dream-crusher: a large nondescript Didelphodon which protects Forrest from "unrealistic goals."
- Destructor: a fox-like Hesperocyon which Forrest believes to protect him from mosquitoes.
- Fury: a yellow Hylonomus which supposedly protects Forrest from "the creatures that crawl in the night."
- Forrest's name was never mentioned in the film.
- Forrest Woodbush made a cameo in Inside Out in the form of a statue during Riley's trip to San Francisco.
- Forrest Woodbush shares his name with a brother of Arlo's from an earlier version of the film (discarded in the final film).
- Although he is officially a Styracosaurus and resembles one due to the many horns on his frill, he also has long brow horns and a short nasal horn like a Triceratops.
- In promotional material from Subway, this character is labeled "Shaman".
- His skin resembles a birch tree.
